Question about problem with instagram blocking me from commenting on posts?

I was entering a giveaway contest and to enter you have to tag one friend in separate comments. After I tagged a certain amount instagram was blocking me from commenting so I stopped. After three hours I still could not comment on any post at all. It's almost three more hours and I haven't tried. Is this permanent? It didn't say how long this would last. When is it safe to try again without being at risk of getting my account deleted? Have you heard of this happening, how long are you usually blocked?

Also, if I tried commenting again four separate times to see if I was unblocked does that extend the time I'm blocked?

I can like pictures and send DM's but I cannot comment on anything.
