AD has nothing to do with internet restrictions. You should put these restrictions at the firewall or better yet the proxy level.

Alternatively, if you are using the domain controller for DNS also, you can create fake records. You can, also, use Group Policy to push a hosts file with fake entries for those sites. Neither are perfect but both work and are free, but a pain to manage.
