According to Instagram's official blog,
"We know it can feel overwhelming to manage a rush of negative comments, so we’ve been testing the ability to delete comments in bulk, as well as block or restrict multiple accounts that post negative comments. Early feedback has been encouraging, and we’ve found that it helps people, especially with larger followings, maintain a positive environment on their account."
To delete multiple comments/bulk block accounts:
Tap on a comment and then the dotted icon in the top right corner
Select 'Manage Comments' and choose up to 25 comments to delete at once
Tap 'More Options' to block or restrict accounts in bulk
