I have the following input that requires validation. When the remote method is failed, it displays an error message Please fix this field.. How can I customize this message?

<input type="text" data-validate="{required:true, email:true, remote:'/bonus-point/transfer/validateRecipientEmail'}" class="input-text" title="Recipient Email" value="" id="recipient_email" name="recipient_email" aria-required="true">

There is a way to return a custom error message in json

public function execute() {
    $resultJson = $this->resultJsonFactory->create();
    $message = $this->getRequest()->getParam('message');
    if (strlen($message) < 3) { 
        $resultJson->setData('Message too short'); // error
    } else {
        $resultJson->setData('true'); // success
    return $resultJson;
