UNWANTED offensive popups on Android cell - UTUBE

I have an HTC smartphone. I use utube on my standard computer and also on my cellphone. They are the same account. I have no problem with anything concerning utube on my desktop computer. For the last several MONTHS I have been subjected to "recommended for you" subject matter that I have absolutely ZERO interest in and find offensive. I have never gone to any site that would have anything to do with the subject matter. I do not  speak German at all. There are two specific ads that show up that I have no idea why I am getting these. Many people have had complaints about videos showing up that are of NO interest to them. I followed all of the utube videos on how to eliminate this problem. Most ideas are intended  for desktop computers not smartphones. I do have the official utube application. I have removed the app and reinstalled it. No help. I have cleared history and anything else that I could think of. No help. I do not know what they are selling or promoting specifically, but I CAN tell that they are completely OFFENSIVE to me. Where do I go from here? I have the HTC Incredible 2 phone. It is using version 2.3.4.

Sounds like you need an anti-virus program.  Here's a list of a few for Android: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2425153,00.asp   And MalwareBytes has a version of their program for the Android: http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/mobile/
