It sounds almost the same as 既読(きどく)する.
“既読(きどく)スルー” and “既読(きどく)する” sounds pretty similar, but these two have a different meaning.
スルー = ignore, brush off
Is it true that “スルー” is originally from “through”??
Yes, I know “through” does not mean “ignore.” “スルー” is Japanese English.
The reason why “スルー” became “ignore” is
“through” → “through something” → “through something without touch” → “ignore”
And 既読(きどく)スルー is a noun. When you make it a verb, you can say “既読(きどく)スルーする.”
Oh, it is hard to say…
既読(きどく)スルー is slang. You can use this with your friends without any problem. However, when you are in a polite situation or talking with an older person, you can say
