But they are wrong;

The post which claim that bananas are infected with aids is hosted on a website which has been setup to generate an online revenue by luring people to the site with fake posts.

Once the user lands on the website, the user will be forced to click on fake video which will redirect the user to another website. That website will host a survey which the user has to complete before the video can be watched. Once the video is clicked, the video will not play and the user will be forced to download an additional program to run the video.
