It is not for the moment (June 2021) not possible to hide certain posts on Instagram from some of its subscribers. There are still settings through which you can hide your Stories from certain users, limit the posts you see, and control whether only your friends or all users can access your posts. You can mute certain subscribers, put your account in private, or block a user's profile. When you mute followers, it reduces the number of posts you'll see in your feed. By setting your account private, users will need to send you a request in order to access your profile.
