No. Gigantiform overwrites the creature's power and toughness, but adds the ability trample (does not overwrite). "Is", "lose" or "are" overwrites text or abilities, "gains" and "has" are additive. Gigantiform would leave the creature's hexproof ability untouched.

Just because something includes "is" or "are" doesn't mean it removes abilities. Copy effects overwrite whatever was there originally with the new characteristics. Other than that, for something to remove abilities it needs to say it's removing abilities. (turning something into a basic land type is an exception to this)
