The actor, who starred in the Disney+ series as Cara Dune, came under criticism for sharing a post on social media that compared being a Republican today to the experience of Jewish people during the Holocaust.
Following widespread condemnation, it was announced earlier this month that Carano would no longer be a part of any forthcoming Disney productions.
A Lucasfilm spokesperson called her posts “abhorrent and unacceptable”.
Carano has now addressed the backlash in an interview with right-wing broadcaster Ben Shapiro.
“I’ve been through so much, and I’ve seen so much now, clearly, of the bullying that’s been taking place, and I saw it before,” she said. “I’m not the only one that’s ever been bullied by this company, and I know that so deeply.” She did not provide any evidence to support her claims.

Shapiro and Carano discussed the difference in treatment towards her co-star Pedro Pascal, a vocal opponent of Trump. He tweeted outrage about immigrant children being held into cages at the US-Mexico border.
