Last Week Tonight with John Oliver main story on Sunday was about the Apple and FBI controversy. Watch below.

The Apple FBI controversy about breaking into an iPhone in the San Bernardino case is making the late night TV rounds. Last week Stephen Colbert talked with Attorney General Loretta Lynch about the stand-off between the government and Apple.

On Sunday, John Oliver made the Apple FBI controversy the main story in the Last Week Tonight with John Oliver show on HBO.

Oliver shows both sides, but makes the point that the risks are much higher in so many ways if Apple creates a backdoor in the iPhone. Even Lindsay Graham agrees with that.

The feature ends with an epic fake Apple commercial that breaks the record for using the word "f!@#" the most in Last Week Tonight with John Oliver history. The fake commercial also takes an hilarious swipe at everything Apple did wrong starting with the Newton. Watch the segment below.

The next big battle between Apple and the government is in court on March 22, one day after the Apple media event that is supposed to bring the iPhone SE and a small iPad Pro.

It is not clear at this point how this controversy will be solved. It looks like both sides won't bulge. People in the hacker community including McAfee and Snowden claim the government does not need Apple to hack the iPhone in question.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver airs Sundays at 11pm on HBO. If you have not watch it, two weeks ago John Oliver took on Donald Trump in the most amazing way possible.
