      Description

      This is based on MC-79813

      When you use a /tellraw command or a book with JSON to let the player run a command containing "§", they will get disconnected and their client freezes.

      Command
      /tellraw @p {"text":"Click","clickEvent":{"action":"run_command","value":"\u00a7kTest"}}
      
      Game Output
      [16:36:09] [Server thread/INFO]: Marcono1234 lost connection: TextComponent{text='Illegal characters in chat', siblings=[], style=Style{hasParent=false, color=null, bold=null, italic=null, underlined=null, obfuscated=null, clickEvent=null, hoverEvent=null, insertion=null}}
      [16:36:09] [Server thread/INFO]: Marcono1234 left the game

      [16:36:09] [Server thread/INFO]: Saving chunks for level 'Test test'/The End
      

      Note: The freezing might be caused by MC-92255, however the handleDisconnection() called twice warning is unusual
