On my wide-gamut monitor, this looks greenish. I see it has an sRGB profile. When I downloaded it and assigned it an Adobe RGB profile to replace the sRGB, it looked beautiful.

So, apparently it's an Adobe RGB photo that has been assigned an sRGB profile by mistake. Perhaps the poster does not understand that you must use a Convert to Profile command instead of an Assign Profile command when you want to convert to sRGB for online posting. (At least, those are the names in Photoshop.)

So, to fix this, you would assign an Adobe RGB profile, then convert to sRGB for online posting.

It could also be incorrect use of or set-up of proofing. Who knows. But, the OP is accustomed to working with high end calibrated monitors. He says so HERE. I just think its a big mountain made out of a tiny molehill.

They said it couldn't be done, so I encouraged my peers not to bother.
