Schlossberg's social media profile started to rise to influencer levels in 2023.

After his cousin Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced his candidacy for President, Schlossberg posted videos criticizing him as many members of the Kennedy family did, including the May 3rd Reel (seen below), which received over 12,300 likes over the course of two months.[4] A theme of Schlossberg's content is his support for President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party of his grandfather.

Schlossberg has maintained a TikTok account since May 2024. As of June 2024, he has over 77,000 followers. Like on his Instagram, his content often revolves around different "characters" doing voices and discussing politics as well as surrealistic posting and lip-synchs.[6]

Schlossberg's popularity on TikTok took off in May 2024.
