    So that's the story:
    I run a personal account, 90k followers. One of my sponsors wanted me to post the link to their official store AGAIN (I've posted this link 5 times in last 3 months)
    - This brand is worldwide known
    - Gym niche
    - Nothing bad, no bad words, "dirty" contents, or stuff like that
    - Link was not cloaked, and the landing page is nothing but the official store (no surveys, no mail submission, nothing)

    So...why the hell does instagram tells me it's impossible to share THIS link as they don't want it to be posted? I can still post other links, but this one is just forbidden... Any advice?

    You probably weren't the only person they were getting to post it. They've probably been running a lot of campaigns and the URL itself is blocked, that would make sense why you can post other links and not theirs.

    Title is misleading, I thought Instagram has forbidden usage of links in bio. -_-

    Oh, sorry guys, I thought writing link and not linkS was enough... I apologize, probably someone collapsed too!

    Just register a .tk domain similar to theirs or ask them to buy a domain that is similar to theirs and forward them through that way.

    Really, it is their problem and they will need to find a way around it - if you can solve it, it will be a win-win situation.
