Google ads keep downloading

I have a Samsung Galaxy phone, and for the last few days google ads keep downloading to my phone every time I read an article on DU. I don't know if I've inadvertently changed some setting or if something changed on DU website.

1. What do you mean 'downloading?' Do you mean ads show up?

4. What Gives?

The ads aren't passively 'showing'. They are actively downloading to my phone. After reading through DU each day, I have to delete the files that have downloaded - 6, 8, or maybe 12, depending on how many articles I've read. I've been a member for about a year, and this just started happening last week. It doesn't happen on any other website.
I have to admit, I don't even know what 'buying a star' means.
