You are dealing with referrer spam.
The easiest way to deal with this is to:
- Go to the Google Analytics Admin section
- Select the correct view
- Go to Filters
- Click Add filter
- Give your filter a name such as "Include only my website"
- Under Predefined, select "Include Only"
- Under Select Source or Destination, select "traffic to the hostname"
- Under Select expression, select "that contains"
- In the Hostname field, enter "yoursite.com", where yoursite.com is really your domain name.

Save your filter and enjoy new, somewhat-spam-free traffic!
